Will save you time, money and some heartache. However, rescue pupps are awesome too. http://www.candlehillshepherds.com/articles/howToFindAGoodGermanShepherd.html [/quote] Yes, parents can be certified free of dysplasia but in the end the only way you can be 100% sure that your dog is free of hip dysplasia is to also have the certification done on your own dog as well. However, even parents that are certified may produce a pup that has hip problems but (depending on factors, which is why it does depend on the breeder) in general, should be less likely to produce one. [/quote] the problem is my friend breeds them, I can get one from her at a great price, but I am actually considering looking to import one from another breeder. I don't want to hurt her feelings, but I want a dog that is going to be as free and clear of hip problems as possible. I've been thinking about this for along time, and she is asking me if I want in on the next litter and I keep stalling. I know a dog is a dog and I'll fall for it no matter where is comes from, but I want to get the best I can. [/quote] Talk to your friend about your concerns, she should understand. Ask her if she will take the pup you select to a vet to be certified, even if you have to pay for it. Be sure and get somebody else to do this rather than you because if the puppy has likely hip problems and YOU were the one holding him and cuddling him for a length of time, you would be well on the way to bonding with that dog. You might be really sad about returning him to the breeder so spare yourself that anguish. [/quote]
I have a friend who breeds them and she seems happy with them as a pet. My only question is about their hips, I always hear stories about them getting some sort of hip problems (I forget what they call it)I also plan on taking it to training, so it will be well behaved in public.
